Mayhem trade skates for bikes with afternoon spin class
MACON, GA -- To play fast, you have to be fast. That's the game plan for the Macon Mayhem and the SPHL regular season champs are doing everything in their power to maintain their frantic pace.
Saturday afternoon the Blue Sweaters took part in a spin class at the Kinetix Health Club in Macon. It's the first workout for the team since a chaotic three-game series victory over Columbus.
It's another feather in the cap for the Mayhem, but it's not the end goal.
"It's kind of nice to step back and look what we've accomplished being down one game and coming back to win the series," said Mayhem Foward Collin MacDonald. "We just leave it right there and move on. That's not the goal just to win the first series."
MacDonald netted the overtime-winner in Game 2 as the Mayhem bounced back after a series-opening loss. The stakes are about to get even higher for Macker and the Mayhem against the defending champion Pensacola Ice Flyers.
"We know what's at stake with Pensacola," MacDonald said. "They're a good team."
Unlike the first round, the Mayhem will have home ice in the semifinals. The series begins Wednesday night in Pensacola with a 7:35 puck drop.
